prawlie (1082) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2013
500 mL bottle mail ordered from the Old Chimney Brewery, poured into a pint glass. Good bubbly head on a fizzy golden beer. Dry, lightly hopped, with a nice mouthfeel. Reasonable mild hop aroma. Tastes ok, but lacks a little in character.

jmgreenuk (4022) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 30, 2013
Bottle from the brewery. Poured a hazy medium amber with a broken frothy white head. The aroma is hop and malt. The flavour is medium bitter with a zesty yeast hop malt citrus palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Very refreshing. I liked this a lot.

Bottle shared thanks to Jmgreenuk. Pours hazy golden brown with an off white head. Aroma of biscuity malt, toffee and light fruity hops. Flavour is light moderate sweet and over moderate bitter. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. A nice example of the style.

StueyD (1110) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2013
Mid amber orange coloured beer with a weak head. Malty aroma, butterscotch and caramel. Dry mouthfeel. Dry malt flavour, biscuity and cereal, plus the butterscotch flavour comes through. The finish is dry and malty. Tasted at the 2013 CAMRA Norwich Beer Festival. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bobinlondon (1256) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2013
Bottle from the brewery. Gold with a lively white head. Good clean tasting golden ale with smooth carbonation and a little sediment proving bottle conditioning. Well balanced with modest but fresh tasting English hops and no off flavours.

EdKing (1790) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 3, 2012 Bottle from Old Chimneys. Colour is a nice clear reddish chestnut. Nose is sweet, bubble gum, fruity ale notes, caramel, pear drop boiled sweets. Taste is quite unusual in a good way. It’s sweetish, pear drop flavour, quite nice, but then there’s a bit of a bitter tang, and the texture is a bit watery and fizzy. Almost very nice, but when the finish kicks in, it’s possibly lacking body and backbone. Still good though.

Zita (4529) - Assentoft, DENMARK - NOV 27, 2011
light cheese and sour aroma,yellow,white foam, clear, lightly bitter, light body, oily feel, soft carbonation, very floor finish.I think the beer maybe is off or a fail.
